    I think Malaysia is hoping for a decision come Monday as Morten Frost indicated that he will be releasing the Sudirman Cup players list on Monday and they want LCW on the team.

    Suspended shuttler Lee Chong Wei nominated for Malaysian award

    Kuala Lumpur: Former badminton world number one Lee Chong Wei has been nominated for Malaysia`s 2014 sportsman of the year award despite being provisionally suspended for a doping offence.


    The twice Olympic silver medallist is awaiting a verdict from the Badminton World Federation (BWF) after testing positive for the anti-inflammatory drug dexamethasone during the world championships in August.

    The 32-year-old, who has slumped to 30th in the rankings because of his inactivity, was on a shortlist of 12 revealed on Tuesday by Malaysia`s youth and sports minister.

    Lee won four titles in 2014 and made three other finals, including the world championships where he lost to current world number one Chen Long of China.

    He faces competition from Commonwealth Games gold medallists Hafifi Mansor (weightlifting) and Ooi Tze Liang (diving) as well as Asian Games karate gold medallist Lim Chee Wei.

    It's just a nomination... but my guess is if the verdict is not favourable he won't win, and if favourable then he'll win it... because surely he was in 2014.

    KUALA LUMPUR: It is learnt that shuttler Lee Chong Wei has been served with an eight-month ban over a doping violation.

    The good news is that the sentence will be backdated from Aug 30 and he will be eligible to play in competitions from May 1.

    Chong Wei will therefore be able to compete in three upcoming majors - the Sudirman Cup in Dongguan from May 10-17, the SEA Games in Singapore in June and the World Championships in Jakarta in August.

    Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin will make an official announcement at 3pm Monday at his Putrajaya office.


    TL;DR - He's going to be back to the international scene, effectively starting from next month!
